Girls Grades 6 & 7

Girls in Science: Future Focus is an afterschool program focused on engaging middle school girls in exploring careers in science with like-minded peers. Students will meet women in science or other STEM professions, hear their personal and career stories and engage in fun, hands-on science experiments.

Running in person January–February 2024, Future Focus is an intensive, six-week program for 6th- and 7th-grade girls and nonbinary students who have shown ability and strong interest in the sciences, especially the natural sciences. The Girls in Science mission is to engage girls in hands-on science experiences, connect participants to inspiring women in science and to create a safe atmosphere where diversity can be celebrated and students’ natural curiosity can flourish.
